Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas
Miami, Florida and Cape Liberty, New Jersey
Oasis of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s ship that revolutionized the cruise industry when it debuted 10 years ago, recently completed a $165 million modernization that includes an all new resort-style pool deck and trio of waterslides. The Caribbean theme stretches across the pool deck, and new shallow-water sun shelves in all three pools offer plenty of in-water lounge space. The waterslides on the top deck feature two twisting slides with transparent sections of tube and a third slide that empties riders into a looping bowl. As well, Oasis of the Seas boasts one of the biggest kids aquatic play areas—dubbed Splashaway Bay—that is comprised of a shaded tot area with its own slide and a kids wet play structure with three slides, two dumping buckets, and plenty of splashing fun.
